Cool, another happy commercial client…
Quote in haste, repent at your leisure…almost.
Just had great feedback from my latest client for a job that I thought would be easier than it was.
The spec was to shoot very small medical drill bits to a high standard to match the white, clinical and precise nature of their medical equipment business…
The cost agreed (with the company owner) was for one day but in reality, it took nearly two. Most of one day for the actual shoot and another full day for editing as there were quite a few shots taken and to get a 255/255/255 pure white background on all took some time.
Luckily, white backgrounds have been a large part of my stock photography shoots so even though it took time, it was doable. However, what I didn’t expect was a certain degree of “snow blindness” once I had finished editing and scrutinising all those pure whites!
When you first hear the specs for a commercial shoot, think hard about what it really entails before you rush to try and get the job by selling yourself short. In hindsight I should have charged a little more for this job but myself and the client are happy so all’s well…and I may get more work in the future.
